Nexus 6 Carrier Activation Issues

This might be the single most annoying thing about the Nexus 6… but there’s an easy fix

This might be the single most annoying thing about the Nexus 6… but there’s an easy fix

Nexus 6 units have already started shipping to early buyers, and while many of them may be using the huge Lollipop-running phablet as their daily driver, not all of them are so lucky. It looks like Google has found another way of messing up the Nexus 6 launch — in addition to only having a very limited number of Nexus 6 units to go around, thus preventing many from buying the handset — and that’s adding the phones’ unique IMEI codes to carrier databases, so that mobile operators can activate the Nexus 6 on their networks.

2015 Samsung Galaxy Smartphones

Samsung will finally give up on gadget spam next year

Samsung will finally give up on gadget spam next year

Samsung has used smartphone buyers in previous years to seeing a wide variety of Galaxy-branded smartphone and tablet versions in stores, as the company tried to meet all the various smartphone requirements customers might have, both when it comes to features and prices. While the smartphone spam strategy worked well in Samsung’s favor for a few years, helping the Korean giant get a large share of the Android market by selling plenty of entry-level and mid-range handsets on top of flagship devices, that might not be enough for the company anymore, whose mobile division isn’t as profitable as it used to be.

A blast from the past: The iPhone wasn’t Apple’s first effort with mobile phones

We all know the story of how Apple completely changed the mobile phone industry with the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. However, this wasn’t Apple’s first attempt at cracking the mobile phone market — a post over at Reddit’s Apple fan page reminds us that Apple and Motorola teamed up to release an “iTunes phone” back in 2005, just two years before Apple released its own game-changing smartphone.

One of the strengths of the service is the security it provides, but what happens if your iPhone 6 gets stolen?

How To Free Up Space On iPhone

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

By on November 17, 2014 at 11:10 AM.

While iOS 8 is probably the most substantial update Apple’s mobile software platform has ever received, adoption has been shockingly slow compared to earlier iOS updates. It makes sense that people might not be quite as quick to update to iOS 8 as they were with iOS 7, which introduced an exciting new look for iOS. But the gap has been fairly significant, and most people seem to agree that the explanation for the slower adoption rate is fairly simple: People just don’t have enough free space on their devices to download and install iOS 8 or iOS 8.1 over the air.

Connecting to iTunes to perform the update is one possibility, but many people have never connected their iPhones and iPads to a computer and don’t want to start now. If you fall into that category, here’s the best thing you can to free up space and update your smartphone or tablet. More →
